Most of the fruit to this wine is picked from the cooler, higher parcels, which express more tropical flavours than grapes from the valley floor. The component of Semillon in the cuvee contributes brightness and aromatic lift. The result is a fresh and lively nose of jasmine florals and lychee fruit, with a palate of crisp minerally acid, and persistance of flavour. The palate is crisp and steely, and drinking beautifully now.
Yarra Burn achieves an outstanding example of Sauvignon/ Semillon that reflects the fabulous strength of the local vineyards. Yarra Burn's fastidious approach to micro-viticulture produces exceptional white grapes with intense varietal characters. The vines here display excellent vigour, delivering good healthy grapes with crunchy fruit characters. Minimal skin contact combined with gentle pressing, natural cold settling, and fermentation in small tanks have enhanced and preserved the delicate fruit flavours of this wine. Cool fermentation temperatures with carefully selected yeasts, enhance and preserve the delicate fruit flavour, and racey, punchy qualities of the wine. Approx 12.0%
TASTING NOTES
Light silvery/ green colour. Fresh cut lychee fruit on the nose, coupled with the exotic aromas of gooseberry and lime, balanced out with subtle spice and a slight grassiness. A sweet entry onto the palate is complimented with a very fine, minerally acid, allowing for a lovely, fresh, juicy mouthfeel. There's snow pea, beautifully fine textures, fresh citrus highlights, lemongrass and more gooseberry. Fresh and zingy, fine and delicate, there is good palate weight and sweetness of fruit, finishing with great length and complexity.

About the Yarra Burn Winery
In August 1975 David and Christine Fyffe purchased a property near Yarra Junction that has softly undulating good soil and fabulous views to Mt Donna Buang
In the spring that followed they erected makeshift houses to stay in while they planted vines on their days off from running Mayerling Cellars. Initial plantings were 2 acres each of pinot noir, cabernet sauvignon and half an acre of gewrztraminer, which was fairly quickly replanted with merlot when it lost popularity. The original name Settlement Vineyards was already registered so they settled on Yarra Burn, as the property is located half way between the two small townships of Yarra Junction and Wesburn. Part time study in viticulture and oenology at Roseworthy and Charles Sturt and help from consultants contributed to Yarra Burn's success. In late 1977 the Fyffes sold their bottleshop to build a house and an estate winery at Yarra Burn. They were encouraged and assisted by their friends at Jean Jacques by the Sea in establishing an onsite restaurant. Yarra Burn»
